In this project proposal, the technique to get a random point on the surface of the Earth was discussed. Earth is considered as a spherical object, so spherical coordinates system is used. At first, for simplicity, the sphere of radius 1 is considered. After that, a random point on the sphere is selected and finally the value from spherical coordinates system is converted into Cartesian coordinates system.
